She obtained her undergraduate degree in art history at the University of Pennsylvania, medical degree from the Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine. Trained at Columbia Presbyterian in New York City, worked at Columbia’s Center for Women’s Health, and at the Women’s Health Center at the Cleveland Clinic.
